Young lady Sun Yujiao and young man Fu Peng fell in love with each other at first sight. To express his adoration, Fu Peng put a jade bracelet at the door of Sun Yujiao’s. Sun Yujiao blushingly picked it up, indicating that his courtship was accepted. This opera focuses on the movements and expressions of the heroine and uses ”the combination of imagination and reality”, which is a performing skill in Peking Opera and requires the actress to illustrate material objects like door, henhouse, needle, thread and chickens that do not actually exist on the stage through the movements of hands, eyes, body and feet.
Performance presented in Chinese, with translation.
